Jesus Stories

Let the Children Come to Me

One time Jesus was visiting in a town.

There were a lot of people crowded around.

The people were asking questions.

Jesus was teaching them.

Then, the mothers started to bring their children up to Jesus.

The mothers wanted Jesus to touch their children.

The apostles said to the mothers, "Do not bring your children up here.  Jesus is busy.  He is teaching us. Keep the children away.  Don't let them bother Jesus"

When Jesus heard this, he was very displeased with his apostles.

He said to the apostles, " Do not keep the children away.  Bring the children to me."

The apostles did as Jesus asked.

The children walked up to Jesus.

Jesus took the children and held them in his arms.

Then he put his hands on the children and blessed them.

Isn't that wonderful?

What do you think?

Were the mothers right for allowing there children to go to Jesus?

Does Jesus love you?

Do you feel you are special to Jesus?

Write to ME and let me know what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's pray:
Dear God,
Thank you for caring about me.
Thank you for loving me.
Help me to know that you love me.
Help me to love others as you love me.
I ask this through Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?
